• On February 20 1962, John Glenn became the first U.S. astronaut to orbit the Earth in a space capsule for an extended period of time. During this flight, Glenn contacted mission control as he was seeing a “brilliant blue horizon” coming up behind him at sunrise.
• Suddenly, Glenn begins to describe an incredible sight. “I am in a big mass of some very small particles that are brilliantly lit up like they’re luminescent. I never saw anything like it. They’re coming by the capsule and they look like little stars. A whole shower of them coming by.” He said he could see them for miles in each direction.  Glenn reports that  there are literally thousands of them, spaced about eight feet apart and brilliantly lit, all around the capsule.
• Glenn took video of the sea of little lights and describes them in the video. (see 6:42 video below)
• Later in 1962, astronaut Scott Carpenter made a similar orbit on the Aurora 7 capsule and also saw these “fireflies.” Carpenter was able to tap the sides of the capsule and make them float off.
• NASA concluded they were ice particles that had accumulated on the outside of the capsule and caught by sunlight.

 

A NASA astronaut can be heard explaining his amazement at the sight of his capsule being surrounded by strange UFOs.

The recording is between astronaut John Glenn and mission control on Earth as he orbited Earth in a space capsule on February 20 1962 as the first US astronaut to do it for an extended period.

In the audio Mr Glenn, who calls himself Friendship Seven, can heard describing seeing a “brilliant blue horizon” coming up behind him as it approaches sunrise.

Then, he suddenly realises something peculiar is happening as several UFOs appear.

He said: “This is Friendship Seven. I’ll try to describe what I’m in here.

“I am in a big mass of some very small particles that are brilliantly lit up like they’re luminescent.
“I never saw anything like it.

“They’re coming by the capsule and they look like little stars.

“A whole shower of them coming by.”

he said they swirled around the capsule, were brilliantly lit, at seven or eight feet apart and all around the capsule.

He was asked by mission control if he heard any impact with the capsule, to which he said no.

He added: “They’re very slow. They’re not going away from me more than maybe three or four miles per hour.”

He then gets no response for sometime as he continues to describe what’s happening.

Mr Glenn said: “they do have a different motion from me because they swirl around the capsule and then depart back the way that I am looking.

“Are you receiving over…

“There are literally thousands of them.”

• Dr. John Brandenburg is a well-known and respected plasma physicist who has worked on plasma technologies, nuclear fusion, and advanced space propulsion for NASA, and invented the Microwave Electro-Thermal plasma thruster using water propellant for space propulsion. Brandenburg was the Deputy Manager of the NASA Clementine Mission to the Moon that discovered water at the Moon’s poles in 1994.
• According to Brandenburg, the superabundance of Xe 129 in the Mars atmosphere is a “nuclear weapon” signature, indicating that there was a nuclear blast on Mars that completely changed the planet’s surface.
• Brandenburg says that there are things “out there” that have been deliberately kept from us. Whether this information has been concealed because the human race is not ready for this information, or that it’s just too “mind-altering” and would change too many things, or because its disclosure would threaten to various corporate interests remains unclear.
• As we move through 2018 and beyond, more people will become open and aware to the idea that we are not alone, that we’ve never been alone, and that there is plenty of evidence to prove these claims.

 

A lot of people reading the title of this article are probably rolling their eyes, and that’s a problem. Paradigm-changing discoveries are being made every day, and if these discoveries don’t make mainstream media headlines, people dismiss them as fake news, conspiracy theories, or pseudoscience. But the small group of people who control mainstream media also have control over our perception of reality, over what we consider to be real or not real, and that’s a problem.

The world has witnessed the birth of several different “alternative” news outlets in response to this issue, yet the information they provide never makes mainstream headlines despite coming from credible sources. This has especially been the case when it comes to UFOs, extraterrestrials, and life on other planets.

Despite studies being published in multiple peer-reviewed scientific journals bringing forth some very intriguing questions, this type of information is still greeted with skepticism more often than not, though things are slowly changing. As we move through 2018 and beyond, more people will become open and aware to the idea that we are not alone, that we’ve never been alone, and that there is plenty of evidence to prove these claims.

One person working to prove them is Dr. John Brandenburg, a well-known and respected plasma physicist who joined a number of colleagues in blowing the whistle on the need for disclosure. They argue there are things “out there” that have been deliberately kept from us. Whether this information has been concealed because the human race is not ready for this information, that it’s just too “mind-altering” and would change too many things, or because its disclosure would threaten to various corporate interests, remains unclear and too broad a subject to tackle here.

Since coming out, Brandenburg has been ridiculed by the mainstream, as any Department of Defense scientist making such claims would be, but the information he shares correlates with scores of other papers and documents available in the public domain, as well as the information that’s been shared by a number of scholars over the years, about this subject.

We’ve presented his work in multiple articles, but he has now come out with new revelations.
Brandenburg worked for NASA for a number of years. He was also the Deputy Manager of the Clementine Mission to the Moon, which was part of a joint space project between the Ballistic Missile Defence Organization (BMDO) and NASA. The mission discovered water at the Moon’s poles in 1994.

He has also worked on space plasma technologies, nuclear fusion, and advanced space propulsion, and invented the Microwave Electro-Thermal plasma thruster using water propellant for space propulsion.

Mars

“The more we observe Mars, the more information we’re getting that it really is a fascinating planet, from the Curiosity Rover we now know that Mars once was like a planet very much like Earth, with long salty seas, with fresh water lakes, probably with snow capped peaks and clouds and a water cycle just like we’re studying here on Earth. . . . Something has happened to Mars, it lost its water.”

The quote above is from John Grunsfeld, a five-time space flow astronaut and associate administrator of NASA’s Science Mission Directive. It was given at a NASA press conference where representatives told the world that there is a water Mars, that it’s not the dry, arid planet we imagined it to be, and that it was once very much Earth-like and still holds the possibility of harbouring life. After all, water means life.

In that conference, they admit to a drastic atmospheric shift that occurred on Mars which took it from its Earth-like composition to the one we see today. They provide no explanation for how this happened.
According to Brandenburg, there was a nuclear blast that completely changed the planet (the changes mentioned at the press conference linked in the above paragraph. He states: “The question has been raise as to why a superabundance of Xe 129 in the Mars atmosphere, relative to every other major planetary isotopic reservoir in the Solar System can be considered as “nuclear weapon” signature on mars. In this brief article I will summarize how Xe 129 superabundance occurs physically and is associated in the open literature with “fast neutron fission” found in supernova – the close physical analog to a hydrogen bomb explosion (3,4,5). I will also show that Earth atmospheric data compared between 1937 (1), just before the dawn of the nuclear age, and that done in 1950 and 1978, clearly shows an increase of Xe 129 from 1937 relative to other Xe isotopes and can therefore be associated with open air nuclear weapon testing and plutonium production, which itself produces large amounts of fast neutron fission of Uranium and Plutonium isotopes.”

• 2017 marks the most convincing year yet for the belief that life must exist beyond our planet. Believing in extraterrestrial is no longer reserved for conspiracy theorists in tinfoil hats. Nearly half of humanity believes aliens are out there, according to a recent study.
Here are five stories that prove it’s only a matter of time before we meet our celestial neighbors:
• 1. Scientists keep finding Earth-like planets – In 2017 there were dozens of discoveries of earth-like “Super Earths” contained within a planetary “Goldilocks zone” where conditions are just right for water to exist.
• 2. Reported UFO sightings are at their highest ever – A George Mason University doctoral student found that UFO sightings have hit an all-time high and that most of the sightings come from the US. Since the first recorded UFO flew over Portugal in 1905, there have been at least 104,947 sightings. Annual sightings have spiked from about 5,000 in 1980 to about 45,000 in 2010.
• 3. Life may already be hanging out in our own solar system – NASA scientists revealed that ice planets, like Pluto and Neptune, could harbor life deep beneath their icy surfaces. Their moons could have enough gravitational pull to create energy beneath the planet’s surface – generating heat and allowing a sub-surface ocean to exist.
• 4. NASA hired someone to protect us from aliens – In August, NASA posted a job listing for a ‘planetary protection officer’ to make sure that spacecraft and astronauts don’t contaminate other worlds and don’t bring back anything that could contaminate our own. The job pays between $124,406 and $187,000 and is only one of two full-time posts in the world. The applications closed on August 14th and there’s been no update on who landed the gig.
• 5. The Pentagon has receipts – In December, the Pentagon released footage of Navy F/A-18F ‘Hornet’ pilots off the coast of California tracking a glowing white orb rotating while the pilots try to figure out what they’re looking at. Cmdr. David Fravor, one of the pilots who saw the UFO, said, “It was a real object, it exists and I saw it.” It resembled a white Tic Tac and was “something not from the earth.”

 

The truth is probably already here.

The evidence that aliens exist has been slowly mounting for decades and 2017 marks the most convincing year yet for the belief that life must exist beyond our planet.

And believing in the extraterrestrial is no longer reserved for conspiracy theorists in tinfoil hats. Nearly half of humanity believes aliens are out there, according to a recent study, and in June, the European Space Agency signed off on a $668 million mission that will hunt for other life forms 932,000 miles into space. Meanwhile, scientists continue to be baffled by a bunch of mysterious signals that keep emanating from faraway galaxies.

Here are five stories that prove it’s only a matter of time before we meet our celestial neighbors.

1. Scientists keep finding Earth-like planets

Scientists have long presumed that if we’re going to find life on other planets, we’re going to find them in the “Goldilocks zone” — spots throughout the universe where conditions are just right for water to exist.

The intergalactic search for our neighbors grew more promising in 2017 with dozens more “super-Earth” discoveries.

And even though we don’t yet have the technology to reach these planets, 2017’s “super-Earths” have included:
• Wolf 1061c: Discovered in January, located 14 light years away

• LHS 1140b: Discovered in April, located 40 light years away

• Ross 128b: Discovered in November, located 11 light years away

• K2-18b: Discovered in December, located 111 light years away

In June, NASA’s Kepler telescope found 10 “Goldilocks-zone” planets and in October, the telescope found 20 more “hiding in plain sight.”

“Are we alone?” Kepler scientist Mario Perez asked at a news conference following NASA’s June discovery. “Maybe Kepler today has told us indirectly, although we need confirmation, that we are probably not alone.”

2. Reported UFO sightings are at their highest ever

In February, a doctoral student found that UFO sightings have hit an all-time high and that most of the sightings come from the US.

Sam Manafort, who’s studying Human Factors and Applied Cognition at George Mason University, crunched numbers from the National UFO Reporting Center. In his report, he found that since the first recorded UFO flew over Portugal in 1905, there have been at least 104,947 sightings.

But the number of yearly sightings has spiked dramatically from about 5,000 in 1980 to about 45,000 in 2010. In the US alone, there are 2,500 sightings per 10 million people — something Manafort attributes to the fact that most of the US has access to the internet.

Most of the sightings have come from the West and Northwest, an area that lines up with America’s “UFO highway” — a latitude line across the U.S. that a pair of sibling alien hunters believes is an entrance for extraterrestrial spacecraft.

The duo, whose book “37th Parallel” is being made into a movie, state that during years-long travels across the US, the most bizarre paranormal phenomenon took place along the 37th latitude line.

This line stretches from California through Nevada, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky and across to Virginia.

3. Life may already be hanging out in our own solar system

Pluto might have been demoted from a planet to a dwarf planet back in 2006, but the icy world could be holding a lot more than hurt feelings.

In November, NASA scientists revealed that ice planets, like Pluto and Neptune, could harbor life deep beneath their icy surfaces, thanks to their moons.

Dubbed Trans-Neptunian objects, these celestial bodies might benefit from tidal heating. This means that these icy planets have moons with enough gravitational pull to create energy beneath the planet’s surface — which generates heat and allows a sub-surface ocean to exist. The findings were published in Icarus.

“These objects need to be considered as potential reservoirs of water and life,” Prabal Saxena of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center said in a press release. “If our study is correct, we now may have more places in our solar system that possess some of the critical elements for extraterrestrial life.”

A separate study published in May suggested that Pluto, Saturn’s moon Enceladus and Jupiter’s moon Europa may have life due to a different process known as radiolysis. And in December, the American Geophysical Union reported that tectonic activity on Europacould be feeding life to Jupiter’s icy moon.

4. NASA hired someone to protect us from aliens

In August, NASA posted a job listing that quickly went viral.

The space agency was looking to hire a planetary protection officer — someone in charge of making sure that spacecraft and astronauts don’t contaminate other worlds and don’t bring back anything that could contaminate our own.

“NASA maintains policies for planetary protection applicable to all space flight missions that may intentionally or unintentionally carry Earth organisms and organic constituents to the planets or other solar system bodies and any mission employing spacecraft, which are intended to return to Earth and its biosphere with samples from extraterrestrial targets of exploration,” the job description stated.
